Played at 2, 3, & 4 players. Very enjoyable and tight game. Well balanced at all levels. I like abstracts better than many designer gamers do, and this is one of the best. Plays really quickly.

This is simply brilliant game. So simple, but still challenging. And it very fun to play. And I don't even like abstracts.

Excellent game. Cunning scoring, and tense drama that at the end of gameplay.

Splendid solitaire version too.

I've wanted this for a long time, and it certainly was worth the wait. I can't imagine ever turning down a game, and it scales well in my opinion. Love it.

despite abstract nature, very accessable to newbies, but subtle strategies for pros - can be tight up until the final few turns

Easily comprehendable, gripping, strategic, taking merely 30min per game. At the moment of of my favourites. Though upon first glance the design seems a little bit dull

Two seconds to learn how to play and I love the fact that it is so simple yet pleasing to play. Usually end up playing best of 3. Excellent for 2 players too. Don't need to be a gamer. And no it is not dominoes. You also get chance to mess up opponent. I like the scoring mechanism - simple but effective.

WOW! I'm totally addicted to this game! Easy to learn. Adapts very well to 3-4 player games, but works best at 2-player. The official solitare variant sucks because you immediately place the random tile you draw. I play the solitare variant using the normal 6-tile rack rules -- it's less frustrating.

Played numerous times face-to-face, and hundreds of times on BSW (mainly with 2). I liked my first play of that game, but did not suspect I would like it that much after so many plays. The rules are really simple, the game is rather nice-looking (I am aware that could be discussed), the luck factor is reduced a lot by the possibility to change your tiles (which is much more useful than some people seem to imagine), and the game plays rather quickly, turning it into a very nice filler. Also, the board scales very well (although I much prefer playing with 2, or with teams, to prevent "blocking responsibility" problems). Overall, a simple, yet impressively enjoyable design.

An excellent abstract strategy game. Works well with 1, 2, 3 or 4 players. So simple, and so tactical, typical Knizia!

The rules only take a few minutes to read. You have to think about your choices, but the gameplay is far less stressful than for other abstract strategy games. You can play quickly or more thoughtfully, depending on your own preferences and who you're playing against. We play 2-player.

Another awesome abstract game. Plays fine with 2,3 or 4 players. Even the solitaire version is nice.

I love this game. After 2 plays I'm definitely going to buy it. It's so simple it can be played and taught to anyone, but holds a depth that will ensure replay over and over. Goes right up there with Blokus for me and might even dislodge it from the pedastal...we'll see..

This is one of those rare games that has an underlying drive given its simplicity. It's so simple to teach and turns go by quickly. The board starts to unfold into wonderful patterns that you can use to your advantage. Another superb game from Knizia.

simple and quick, still enjoyable. try it with open tiles in a 2 player game, or with 3 face up tiles for drawing instead of random...
